Royal wedding records
William’s parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer hold the title of largest TV audience for a wedding when they tied the knot on July 29, 1981. An estimated 750 million people tuned in from 74 countries to watch them say I do.
When it comes to food, royal wedding confections sure are pricey! In 1937, a slice of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor’s cake was sold at auction for $29,900. We wouldn’t want to take a bite, though: The auction was held by Sotheby’s New York in 1998.
Kate better hold onto her veil! If she wants to score this record, she’ll have to top the 11,017-foot long veil worn by Sandra Mechleb in her wedding to Chady Abi Younis in 2009.
We’re hoping the largest bouquet comes with a crane. The record holder’s 1,500 trailing carnations and roses measured over 197 feet long.
On second thought, maybe a simple affair would suit style-icon Kate a li’l bit better!
